Four Lebanon County golfers headed to districts
Cody Tobias is going back. Nolan Hoover, Danika Boltz and Amber Kintzer are headed there for the first time.
Where are those four Lebanon County golfers going, you ask? The District 3 Golf Championships, of course, after qualifying for the event at Monday's Lancaster-Lebanon League Tournament at Fairview Golf Course.
Hoover, from Cedar Crest, and Elco's Tobias finished tied for 10th and tied 13th, respectively, to snare two of the 19 available AAA berths for the district tourney, slated for Oct.7-8 at Briarwood East Golf Club in York.
Hoover, a freshman, carded a seven-over par 78 on Cedar Crest's home course, while Tobias, who finished in a tie for fifth at last year's AAA district tourney, shot 79 to assure himself of a return trip to Briarwood East.
Also on Monday, Annville-Cleona's Mason Moore shot an 89 to finish tied for 42nd, but 7th among Class AA competitors to gain an alternate spot for districts.
RJ VanTash of Lancaster Catholic won the boys individual championship with an even par 71 that gave him a two-shot victory over a trio of runners-up - Brock Fassnacht of Warwick, Sam Beauregard of Manheim Township, and Austin Glass of Hempfield. Beauregard's 73 led Township to the team title with a combined score of 306.
Meanwhile, on the girls side, Elco's Boltz, a sophomore, and Northern Lebanon's Kintzer, a senior, shot 94 and 86, respectively, which placed them well below the cutoff score of 104 needed to claim a district spot. Boltz placed in a tie for 8th and Kintzer finished 11th and will also tee it up Oct.7-8, at Briarwood West, in the girls district tournament.
Grace Stillman of Lancaster Mennonite shot a 78 to win the girls individual title by a single stroke over Allison Appleton of Penn Manor.
At Dauphin Highlands, two Palmyra players, Andrew Alquist and Quentin Leonard, competed in the Mid-Penn tourney. Alquist shot an 88 that left him 36th, while Leonard carded a 100 that placed him 68th.
Timmy Cooper of Central Dauphin fired a 65 to win the event and also lead the Rams to the team championship.
